What if OSU also wins out and the BTT, particularly if they beat us again doing it? We couldn't both be 1s and it would be a bit odd for us to get it instead of them.

Those are a lot of what ifs and their remaining B1G schedule is harder than ours - although, I expect they'll be favored in every game.

Win out the regular season and we're a 2. Win the BTT and we're a 1. Stumble and we're a 3 or even a 4 if we have a couple bad losses.

I agree, I think we have to win out and win the BTT to guarantee the 1. My point in that post was there is a reasonable scenario where we go 16-2 in B1G play and don't get the 1 seed.

I haven't followed the rest of the B1G that closely but it looks like @ NW is our toughest opponent. The silver lining to the B1G being down is that 3 of our last 4 are road games - a couple of years ago this could have been a far tougher home stretch.
